INFINITE SPAN 90 YEARS OF BRAZILIAN ARCHITECTURE
In Brazil, modernization was touted as a leap over the country's history, cast as "backwardness" and in architecture, over the absence of two traditions: the classical and the artisanal. Span or "vão" in Portuguese, means a project of an action that ends in failure and for Brazilian architects, the word vão is almost always a synonym of freedom. Infinite Span 90 Years of Brazilian Architecture assembles iconic projects and works of Brazilian architecture made between 1920 and 2018. The book features crosscutting dialogues between the presented projects and highlights the intersections between architecture, music, literature, cinema, and performing arts.
